Description

Environmentalists agree that nature provides the ideal model for sustainability.

Nature does not waste, it repurposes and recycles. Today’s fossil fuels account for some 87% of the world’s energy needs. In the modern world, buildings account for approximately 40% of energy consumption. This therefore makes buildings a crucial focus area in the efforts to reduce the use of fossil fuels.

By making the worlds building energy efficient, massive savings can be made to both energy costs and CO2 emissions.
